Flim Weakly- Darkest Hour


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Film cannot be truth, because it is made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to Flim Weakly.

This week….

Darkest Hour


A fat, old man goes to war after riding on the tube, because he wanted to see poor people. It’s set in olden times, when we didn’t have phones, so instead he shouts everything, so that the bad guys can hear him, even though they live somewhere that isn’t here.

Some other people don’t like him, and some bombs go off in places I’ve never been, but eventually the old man wins war, because his wife was cool with him being fat and old and his shouting got really scary, which probably scared the bad guys away, back to where they came from, which I think was Belgium.

Marks out of 10…

    Parts of this read like my life. Mainly the fat bits and the shouting.
